WTC - See what they did to us on 9.11

This has been a work-in-progress and began the day after the attack at the World Trade Center and Pentagon. I survived the attack itself by being late to work that day, but I lost many people who were not so lucky. I created the page to honor those I lost, those that America had lost and all of those dedicated, caring human beings who responded to this wanton cowardly act and who we refer to simply as heroes.

This has effected me to the core of my soul. My soul cries out for those that I lost, those I didn't know, for my city, for the Pentagon, for the nation. The page has evolved to what it is now; a remembrance of those that were taken, those who sacrificed their lives in order to sustain our national resolve. We must remember what it is our nation is responding to and keep our flag waving proudly.

Since September 11, I have had the sensation of shaking on the inside and I frequently hold out my hands to make sure that I am not shaking. I suppose that it will subside with time. I know that we will overcome this dark, dark tragedy but I don't think that we will get over it. And I am not too sure that we should ever get over it. We live in a free society but with that freedom comes responsibility. It is our responsibility to continue forward, not allowing these horrific events to change our lives; otherwise the sub-human animals that perpetrated this on us wins.

For those of you who view this as "an opportunity to cease the cycle of violence," I want to remind you that there were 8,000 elementary school children, in grades pre-K through the 5th grades, that had to be evacuated from schools they attended in the shadows of the twin towers - some of whom had parents that worked in one of the 5 buildings that came down; Some of which no longer have mommies, daddies or both. Once we avenge their deaths, once we adequately respond to the worst attack on US soil, then, perhaps, you can talk to me about stopping the cycle of violence, because as far as I am concerned, that is exactly what we are doing right now - making sure that the world knows that when you do this to the United States, you risk unleashing a wrath that you never, ever dreamed of.

We must never forget September 11, America's Day of Emergency, we must remember that there is a price for freedom and a responsibility to freedom. It is our responsibility to defend freedom. Last item and I will get off my soap box: We did not ask for this war. We did not start this war. We will finish this war. We must because if we do not, the message we send is that it is OK to kill thousands of our countrymen and we don't have the resolve to see justice done.

The music on this page is by Enya and the title is Only Time. You have already downloaded the page. Go to your WINDOWS/TEMPORARY INTERNET FILES folder and look for attack.swf (it's large, 7.3 megs). COPY that file (don't move it) to another folder. Then you can copy it to a zip disk or burn it to a CD. If you link to the page that I keep this tribute on, www.powforum.org/wtc please inform me by e-mail so that I can apprise you of any updates. All other users, do a find file or folder and look for attack.swf. Then copy that to another folder. Please note that you will have to open it in your internet browser if you do not have flash installed.

I am humbled by the demand for this page and am deeply, deeply grateful for the overwhelming support for it.

God Bless New York. God Bless Virginia. God Bless America. We will prevail.

Regards,

Due to the tremendous demand that this page has created, the bandwidth has gone through the roof. As I understand it, the normal traffic for my entire Internet Provider is 10bps per month. This page is drawing 45 bps per day and I had to bring the page down temporarily. I am going to start listing mirror sites on the www.powforum.org/wtc site so that in the event I go down again, the page can still be viewed. Hopefully that will solve the problem.

I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Perhaps the best tribute I have seen. I was considering how to respond to a pacifist on another board, who complained that America was responding by emotion instead of truth...I know now how I will respond.

How can I relate to someone who has not emotion from this. From our emotion we will draw strength. I will give her this link. God bless you big time.

And thanks for helping me out! It's just not possible to get over 9.11 and I think in time we'll have more events. Just hope our country has the fortitude to stick together and see this through. It won't be easy.
